The offseason is the best time to dream about the what ifs or the what could have been. So, why not deal with some hypotheticals regarding the Baltimore Ravens? Stealing one player from each division foe not only gives you a chance to root for the best player from your rival team, but you also would be hurting the team in your division of having a chance.

So, if the Baltimore Ravens were able to steal a player from the opposing team for each AFC North opponent, which one would that be?

Baltimore Ravens should steal T.J. Watt from the Pittsburgh Steelers

For the Pittsburgh Steelers, it is relatively simple. Their offense has some exciting young pieces, but it is still a young group overall. If anyone would be worth stealing, it would probably be George Pickens, and while he is ascending, and the Ravens had a shot at him, he is not entirely worth all of that.

On defense, the Steelers have Minkah Fitzpatrick, Cam Heyward, and T.J. Watt. Fitzpatrick is great, but you may want to look in another direction for a team with Kyle Hamilton and Marcus Williams. The Ravens have Broderick Washington and Justin Madubuike on the interior, with Odafe Oweh and David Ojabo on the edges. In either case, Heyward or Watt would be ahead of both starters.

Watt is younger and has a few more accolades, but he has missed more time recently. Heyward seems to be an ironclad player who is aging gracefully. You could argue that adding Cam Heyward could unlock Oweh and Ojabo to the point where his impact is bigger, but Watt is still the better overall player.
